Maitland-Niles facing two months out with broken leg

19 August 2018

"Maybe not especially at left back, but he was playing well in the first 25 minutes on Sunday".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has revealed that he will be able to call upon the services of Spanish defender Nacho Monreal for Saturday's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Arsenal have confirmed that utility midfielder/defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles has suffered a fracture to the fibula bone in his left leg that is likely to rule the 20-year-old out of action for the next six to eight weeks.

Maitland-Niles was selected by Unai Emery for the head coach's first Premier League game in charge but limped out of the action against Manchester City before half-time following a heavy collision with Kyle Walker.

The rarely-used Jenkinson had been free to leave the club this transfer window but his latest injury means he is expected to remain at Arsenal until at least January.

Diego Godin rejected Manchester United for 'personal reasons'
United were willing to pay the 32-year-old's €25million buyout clause, but the Uruguay global turned down their advances. Manchester United made a late bid to sign Godin from Atletico Madrid .

But Emery has been handed some better news with Nacho Monreal returning to training.

France worldwide Laurent Koscielny, who missed his nation's World Cup-winning campaign with an Achilles tendon tear, is on the mend and is expected to return to training in November.

The Gunners have always suffered badly with injury problems, but sure it is not really normal for us to have so many Arsenal players on the treatment table after just one game!

Stephan Lichtsteiner took his place in the team against Manchester City and could star against Chelsea when the Gunners travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend.
